Geli plate pages

Just taken off all the nice neat edges from the geli plate prints - I wanted these pages to look more organic and rough, ready for a grungy journal. Video quality isn't great, so apologies for that.....So ready to make a journal.......


More of my stash used up, it so makes me feels better when I have repurposed lots of bits... I now have an abundance of art cards waiting for new homes in journals and happy mail. I have worked spontaneously mixing and matching what came to hand, then added words and sayings to them, again just what felt right. It's a very nice feeling when I shuffle through them; now to get them into journals and books tucked inside those pockets or as a feature on a page...

Some work on journals, pictures showing front and sides of three journals I am working on. The first journal is made from upcycled materials - the journal itself is filled with ephemora, tags and pages with journalling spots. The second image shows a cover made with board and plaster of paris, so very sturdy - the binding has been done with beads from my stash. The journal is made up of old greetings cards for pages and upcycled with tucks, tags and journalling spaces. Lots of ephemora in there too. The third image is made of recycled products and much the same in content with tags, tucks, ephemera and images. I have added a beaded tag on the book too with a vintage wrap around closure. With journals it is fun to keep re opening them and adding more to them until you feel it has enough in content, words and interest. I usually theme them, which can be in many different ways e.g. colour, topic, to put together some form of memory, to provide a journal that can be used to store memorobelia in or just to be pretty and give you space to write in. So many options and it is so enjoyable meeting any requirements that are requested. Contact me on my web page if you would like me to put a journal together for either yourself personally or for a unique, bespoke gift. Prices will vary depending on size, content and pages. https://www.julieleggettart.com/handmade-books
